As President Trump meets with other world leaders at his first NATO summit, his handshake with recently elected French President Emmanuel Macron grabbed the attention of many on Twitter.
According to one report, "the two men locked hands for so long that knuckles started turning white." Many on Twitter believed Macron had beaten Trump at his notoriously intense handshake game.
